The Allman Family Revival – a star-studded celebration of the life and work of Gregg Allman anchored by The Allman Betts Band – has become a semi-annual tradition since the first of the shows took place at The Fillmore in San Francisco in 2017.
In 2019, there were three Allman Family Revival shows, and now, a whole Allman Family Revival tour has been announced, featuring a who's who of blues guitar greats as special guests.
Running from late-November through mid-December across the United States, the tour will feature The Allman Betts Band (led by Gregg's son, Devon Allman; Duane Betts, the son of Allman Brothers electric guitar legend Dickey Betts; and Berry Duane Oakley, the son of Allman Brothers bass guitar man Berry Oakley) as a sort of house band, in the vein of The Band in their similarly star-studded concert film, The Last Waltz.
The touring lineup for this year's jaunt includes Robert Randolph, Donavon Frankenreiter, Lilly Hiatt, Cody and Luther Dickinson, Eric Gales, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Jimmy Hall, and Lamar Williams Jr., with more said to be announced soon.
Select dates will also feature special guests, including the likes of Kenny Wayne Shepherd, G. Love, Samantha Fish, Alex Orbison and Kenny Aronoff.
“Hard to believe we are in the fifth year of The Allman Family Revival shows," Devon Allman said in a press release. “This year is going to be bonkers – 18 cities, coast to coast in historic theaters with our beautiful, talented friends jamming all night long. Can’t wait!”
